"The US Republican race is dominated by ignorance, lies and scandals. The current crop of candidates have shown such a basic lack of knowledge that they make George W. Bush look like Einstein. The Grand Old Party is ruining the entire country's reputation."
'More than a dozen spies working for the CIA in Iran and Lebanon have been caught and the U.S. government fears they will be or have been executed, according to four current and former U.S. officials with connections to the intelligence community'.
"Other current and former officials said the discovery of the two U.S. spy rings occurred separately, but amounted to a setback of significant proportions in efforts to track the activities of the Iranian nuclear program and the intentions of Hezbollah against Israel".(You think).
Conservatives always promote free unregulated world trade. Here's a Wall Street Journal article giving a rare critique of free trade.

Obama calls for manufacturing to grow but hasn't set strategy
Quote from article:
"As President Obama urges Congress to enact a package of tax cuts and new government spending intended to revive growth and create jobs, one crucial corner of the U.S. economy -- manufacturing -- has largely fallen off Washington's radar screen.
Vermeer makes nearly one-third of its annual revenue from exports -- counting on the U.S. government for trade agreements, favorable currency arrangements, and even white-knuckle diplomacy to make exports happen.

PARIS—France's richest woman, who recently ran into trouble for allegedly evading taxes, said Tuesday she wished to stand by her country as it is going through hardships, urging the government to create a one-time levy on the nation's most well-off taxpayers.
In a call that echoes a recent message to fellow billionaires issued by U.S. tycoon Warren Buffett, Liliane Bettencourt, along with 15 other wealthy individuals, made the unusual plea for a special though "reasonable" tax. (MORE)

Steep Drop Tarnishes Big Bets on Silver
May 4, 2011 Wall Street Journal
By GREGORY ZUCKERMAN And CAROLYN CUI
Silver prices plunged, suffering their worst one-day drop in dollar terms in three decades, as investors fretted that rising trading costs could cripple a market exhibiting signs of froth.
Homosexuals, Muslims and Atheists had a collectively horrible day as the Royal Wedding commenced. Homosexuals had to endure the "offensive" act of watching a man and a woman exchange vows in holy matrimony. How offensive that it wasn't Prince marrying Prince as we could all imagine the honeymoon night of two flamboyantly dressed princes playing tummy sticks on royal bedding.
How great to see Egyptians dancing in the streets after toppling their dictator, but all the while knowing executive power had been transferred to the military. It's inchoate. Shouting "yes" to a now obvious army rule? Perhaps they see Mubarak's expulsion as something greater than whatever happens next. God (or Allah or whatever you want to call Him) bless the Egyptian people. But I worry. Unlike the colonists seeking separation from England in the 1770s, the Egyptian people are not armed. They cannot fire back. They can only gather and shout and hope they don't get shot to death.

"Obama Calls for Curbs on Offshore Tax Havens"
Key quote from the article:
Mr. Obama said most Americans paid taxes as “an obligation of citizenship,” but some businesses and rich people were “shirking” their duties, “aided and abetted by a broken tax system, written by well-connected lobbyists on behalf of well-heeled interests and individuals.”
Please see inside for "The Change".
A real LOL clip of Obummer. Seriously though, it is a true foreshadow.
He doesn't even know it's the Presidential Seal. Then get's all defensive, "All of you know who I am."
LOL, this guy really is a joke. Obummer!
According to this article from Associated Press Government Motors currently owned by the Obama administration may soon become part Chinese. What will Paul Wohlfarth think of this revoltin' development? Who cares? Investment bankers handling the upcoming General Motors Co. stock sale are expected to court foreign investors as well as those in North America, according to a U.S. Treasury Department statement.
This has been relative secret development, but in my opinion is one of the reasons Obama is still in Afghanistan, contrary to campaign promises. Don't be surprised if Obama's buddy, Jeffery Immelt, CEO of GE is a big winner here. This is a great opportunity for obama to reward his cronies.
In your opinion, how should the world community react to Israel’s recent attack on the ships bringing humanitarian aid to the Ga
I doubt the Holloway murder suspect gets away with murder again! He's wanted in Peru-a land known for significantly different jails/police methods, than the tropical paradise-Aruba. More to follow, I'm sure. One thing-they'll get the truth out of him now when he gets caught!

Well, well, well--Great Britain is having its' first Tea Party, this Saturday. What's this about? King Georges' payback? No, I believe "INGSOC'' is in it's death throes, finally.
Just curious why we haven't seen a posting on Toyota's terrorist plot to kill Americans.
You wouldn't know it, but this isn't the first recall ever.
But I have a question - The federal government as well as GM are piling on. UAW is in on it too.
Is it because of the seriousness of the issue and GM wants Toyota's customers, or has this crossed the line into nationalism with shades of jingoism because Toyota is a foreign company?
